    Hello and good day! Couple of quick questions and would be grateful if someone knew the answers.

    I am currently running Shibby v1.28 and I have a bandwidth limited (5Mbps) guest network setup on wl0.1. My kids have many friends over and are constantly on the guest network. I created a script that updates the wireless key every morning and places the new key in a webpage my kids can navigate to grab that key for the day. It works perfectly! (And keeps the neighbors off my network the next day should they be visiting the previous day)

    Currently I am executing the following script to set and enable the new key:

    service nas stop
    nvram set wl0.1_wpa_psk="$NEWKEY"
    nvram commit
    service nas start

    Question 1: Is there a way to enable the new key by only restarting the wl0.1 interface without affecting the other wireless networks?

    Question 2: I've been searching for a script to disable the guest network at certain times of the night and have been unsuccessful. If anyone has knowledge here, it would be great!

    Looks like I found the solution to question 2:

    wl -i wl0.1 radio on/off

    This seems to do the trick...
